A great deal has been written about the bond between mothers and daughters and fathers and daughters. This book explores the equally complex and rewarding relationship between mothers and their sons. It begins with a survey of the literature on the mother/son relationship. Forcey's study is based on the oral histories of 120 mothers who reveal their feelings of responsibility toward their sons, their expectations, and how they communicate. In her examination of the mother/son relationsip, the author ultimately questions whether or not mothers foster sexist masculinity and whether they can be blamed for male dominance.
